Sympathy for Tragic Loss of a GI Employee

Sympathy for Tragic Loss of a GI Employee

Please send your thoughts of Sympathy to the family, friends and coworkers on the Mystery Manor team. On Wednesday, May 9, 2018 the lead programmer at GI was killed in a drunk driving incident.

I will include the link describing the accident but it is in Russian and does not translate well. But I think the picture tells the story really well.

The young man was only 26. From what I could translate he was riding his bike and the drunk driver ran into him killing him instantly. His name was Evgeny and he had a wife.

I am at a loss for words. I cannot imagine losing a child to something like this. He will be in my thoughts.

The article says the maximum sentence is 5 years for this. My contact seems to think he could get 2. I am appalled. If you drink and drive it should be premeditated murder. No exceptions.

Please never get behind the wheel and drive if you’ve had too much to drink. Don’t think you can handle your alcohol. Call someone for a ride.

The story is bad, but the picture is tragic.
I lost a Brother in law in this way not too many years ago.
The drunk driver should be placed in a work camp forever.

Prayers go out to this young mans family and friends, and his fellow workers. So sad to see someone loose his life at such a young age, and worse yet the drunk driver could only get 2-5 years that’s crazy, they murdered someone. 🙏🙏🙏❤️

Continued prayers for this family and his co-workers at GI. This type of loss of life is not easily forgotten and often times, hard to move forward quickly. Time is the healer.

Do you know at this time how it impacts any future developments for an upgrade of MM?


    I do not know. Experience as a developer from both Of us says the impact could vary. Not knowing how GI dev works it could be complicated. Some developers keep a lot of stuff in their head so even when they leave a company there is a lot of stuff for the rest of the team to figure out. I have been giving them time to handle their shock and grief. I heard they were very close to a release. I am still in contact and will put up a post as soon as I know anything.


Very sorry to hear this. Another young life lost and a family in ruins.

I’m so sorry for the senseless loss of this young man’s life. The penalty should be so much more harsh! The family and friends will be in my thoughts and prayers.


My condolences to the family and friend of this man😔


How tragic. Thoughts for his family and coworkers during this difficult time


So sorry to hear of your loss I will light a candle.


So sorry for his loss. My sister was killed by a drunk driver. She was 19. The killer was given 2 years. It makes no sense.

Mary Jansen

Condolences for the family and friends of this young man. No words can help at this senseless loss of such a talented young man. My prayers and thoughts are with you. ❤️❤️ Sending strength to help you through


Thank you for letting the GI gamers know of this loss. Prayers and thoughts to his family and friends

How horrible! My brother was killed when he was 16 and on a small motocycle by what was believed to be a drunken driver. It was at this time, also. Breathalyzers were uncommon in our small community then and nothing happened to the driver. My parents’ grief is vivd still. This young man’s family, friends and coworkers are in my prayers.

Please don’t drink and drive!


The picture is gut wrenching, my condolences to his family, friends and co-workers. What a shame the sentence is so light, a life that can never be replaced. Hopefully the driver remembers enough to feel guilty for the rest of his life. There is no excuse for drinking and driving.

    Where did you see the picture?


      It’s on the news article if you click the link in the post.


So sorry for the loss of a young man with so much to offer. Life is short make sure you tell your loved ones how much they mean to you every chance you get.


What a tragic loss 🙏 prayers


So sad, such a gifted young life lost. I feel sorry for his family and friends left behind to pick up the pieces. My heart goes out to them all 😢


Heartbreaking news, condolences to all connected with GI and for the young man’s family.


I am so very sorry to hear of this tragic loss. Please accept our condolences. If there is a means of doing something to honor him within the game itself, please do so. Sending prayers for comfort and peace for family, friend, and co-workers. No words can make this better.

Eric curran

Very tragic,my heart goes out to his family,I agree with you Willow about the jail sentence but only if people who text and drive get the same sentence,they cause more accidents today than drunks because there are more off them,including most people reading this post

Lucinda Havemeyer

So sorry for your tragic loss. Prayers to all.


Our thoughts and prayers go to the family of this young programmer.


Truly very sad and very unfortunate, such a waste of a young life. May his family and loved ones be surrounded with God’s grace as they deal with such a tragic and untimely loss.

Carole Wilby

Prayers go out to the family of this young man. 5 years jail is an insult to the young man who needlessly paid the ultimate price for someone’s selfish act. My heart goes out to the family. ♥️♥️


I am so sorry for the loss of this talented young man. My thoughts are with his family at this sad time. Such a tragedy🙏

Linda Greene

Sending my deepest sympathy to this young person’s family. This was a tragic accident that should not happen to anyone. The person who did this should receive more years but will have to live with what he did forever. Please don’t drink and drive as it ruins your life and the lives of others…the trickle down effect


Sending my heartfelt condolences to the victim’s family, friends, and co-workers for this senseless killing. The drunk driver should have received more than five years, but he/she will have to live with this the rest of their lives. Let’s hope they learn something from it. All in my Guild, Dragon Quest we’re deeply saddened by this. Prayers to you all.


Tragic and very sad for him and his family and friends, my heart goes out to them. Dreadful sentence for such an awful crime, far too low. One alcoholic drink when driving is one too many. Scotland has a very low drink drive limit compared to the rest of the U.K. but unfortunately it does not stop people repeat offending. The sentence for getting caught should be harsher.

Kaye addicott

This is tragic. I have always said If you are driving you should NOT be drinking. Not even one drink. Condolences to the family.


Is the boycott still going on? I thought ended in March?

Michele DeJesus

I am so very sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.


Such a tragic loss for his friends and family.

Such a senseless accident! Is there a special FB page for him to post our sympathies?

(Drunk driving is a big problem in WI. Especially repeat offenses!)


    Oh, I didn’t think of that. I will ask.


So sorry for the loss of this young person. Prayers sent to the family.


This is so sad & tragic. Agree 2 or 5 years definitely not enough. Thoughts & prayers for the family.


So very tragic and senseless …




Prayers for this young man and his family going up. My heart truly goes out to them. ❤️
